Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub said he's "not sure" about Mecole Hardman continuing his role as the team's primary returner.
"I don’t want to lose him," Toub continued. "I think he’s just scratched the surface as a returner." Toub went on to note that a bigger offensive role for Hardman may limit his availability as a returner, which would be a welcomed sight for fantasy players after the 22-year-old spiked six touchdowns and averaged 20.7 yards per catch on just 41 targets all season. For what it's worth, UDFA Justice Shelton-Mosely was also told he "would be the guy to do the things Hardman does" on special teams upon being signed. Any additional reps over Sammy Watkins and Demarcus Robinson would obviously push Hardman into the WR3 and weekly FLEX range for fantasy in only his second year working with Patrick Mahomes.
